  • Patent number: 10860577
    Abstract: An intermediate device is disposed between a host and a search target. Search requests of m-multiplicity (requests involving a data transfer amount that is unknown to the host) for at least one among n-processes (n is an integer equal to or more than 1) to be executed by the host are issued as requests from the host to the intermediate device. A temporary area associated with the search requests is allocated in the host. For each of the search requests, the intermediate device recognizes a hit data volume in accordance with the search request within a search scope. For each of the search, the hit data is written in an area of the temporary area that corresponds to a write destination address. The write destination address is updated for each of the search requests on the basis of the recognized hit data volume.
